Repeat Stapedectomy after many years?
I found one reference to gradual hearing loss over many years, but have not seen a reference to getting a second operation a long time after the initial.
My first was 21 years ago and the second 16 years ago. I wore a hearing aid for a few years before that.
My hearing has been at least near normal. Tests were done for a few years after the first surgery.
In recent months I have become aware of some hearing loss which prompts the question, 'Does the surgery wear out?" Is it wise to repeat the surgery if hearing becomes less?
Currently my hearing is still better than when I have the initial surgery. The loss may be more specific to certain frequencies. Maybe could be typical loss with age?
